August is here, which is weird but also isn’t, July went by pretty quickly but at the same time it did not feel like it was gone in the blink of an eye like June was, so that was nice. I love summer and am not ready for it to end, August has just begun and I am already dreading it being over because I do love the warmer weather. Anyway, that is not what today is about so let’s just dive in and talk about July.
As usual, I pretty much never have anything interesting or particularly exciting to talk about, I live a very boring life and while I try to combat that sometimes, it never really works. I spend a good amount of my month just relaxing and working, also trying to find a new beer since my favorite has finally gone out of season and I will have to wait until next year for it to come back. Which is very sad if you ask me.
A small win that I did have this month is that I have driven alone a few times, I am not a driver and I am forcing myself to try and drive more, so finally going on a few solo trips is really exciting, yay for actually doing things!
An update on the progress of our house is that we have a roof and it sounds like next week we should have a well and they should be starting on the plumbing and bricks, which is super exciting and I am so ready for it to be finished, which I have been ready for since the beginning. It has been really cool watching it go from nothing to what will be our future home, so I think it is safe to say that I am very much excited.
I have been having a weird month emotionally, mostly because I have felt off for about half of the month but I think I am finally getting out of that bit of funk and I am so happy about that.
Let’s get into talking about goals, starting with my goals from last month, which include finishing five books and I am super happy to say that I have crushed this, I’m still not caught up on my reading challenge but I am not further behind either and that makes me weirdly happy. Now, for something I didn’t do as well with and that is getting into a workout routine this one is hard and I really want to get into a good groove, I just haven’t yet so maybe August will be the one for me. Eating out less is another one that I have done alright with, not where I want to be but I am doing better and that is progress so I am not counting this completely as a failure.
Now, let’s set some goals for next month, starting with reading eight books I know, I did five so now I’m feeling like I can take on the world, plus this will help me catch up on my challenge because I do intend to finish my reading challenge before the year is over. I really want to get into a groove of working out I am just not sure if I will be able to easily, we’ll see. I also want to get ahead on blog posts because I have been falling a bit behind recently and I figure if I try and get a head start on some things maybe I won’t stress as much, especially seeing as I am writing this post on the last day of July with no other posts in my queue.
How did July treat you? Anything exciting coming up in August?
